Increasing clouds tonight, with a chance of showers northwest of Nashville after midnight. Futurecast shows the showers approaching, but diminishing as they move into the northwestern corner of the Midstate:
Mostly cloudy skies on Thursday, but only a 30% rain chance (at best). If you do get some rain, it’s not likely to be substantial:
With the clouds overhead, temperatures will struggle to get out of the upper 60s:
Another chance of showers area wide on Friday — the atmospheric “ripple” that will cause those showers is a bit stronger, and Futurecast is a little more impressed:
I don’t expect any rumbles of thunder with those showers, and certainly no severe weather.
Mostly dry and warmer this weekend, with temperatures back to around 80 for highs:
High temperatures will return to the low to even mid 80s early next week — the forecast highs of 83 on Monday and 84 on Tuesday are just 3 degrees below the record highs for those respective days.
